Eid outfits are usually assumed to be grand, mind-blowing and new.
However, you don’t always have to purchase something new especially when you cannot afford it. This shouldn’t stop you from looking like a million bucks on Eid and the secret to that is to
WORK WITH WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR WARDROBE.
A lot of sisters still don’t have their Eid outfits planned yet and this was what spurred this blogpost. I decided to create an Eid Edit featuring a couple of looks from content creators with different styles. We worked with the basic staples we already had in our wardrobes and created different looks. These looks vary in concept and provides a lot of room for recreation according to your preferences.
We worked with pairing solid colours, from warm tones to sharp contrasting colours and I hope you’d get some ideas by the end of this post.
You can also check out the looks I curated for Eid last year.
1. Browns and Neutrals
I’m starting to really love my browns especially the honey, rust and wood variations. Brown shades with colourful tints (like the rust) go really well with white. You can either dull down a dress like these with nude colours or lighten it up with white shades. I struck a balance between the two by pairing with crystal white and accessorising with black.
Summary: Pick a nice dress in a bright shade of brown and pair it with white or black and you’re good to go.
2. Silks and Contrasts
Silk skirts and blouses are trendy this season because they are light weight. It’s honestly one of the best materials for the hot weather and wearing silks/satins is always a good choice. Go with contrasting tones to avoid looking too bland in one texture. Matching your silks and/with satins and chiffon gives a difference in texture to your look but do not take it too far. The goal is to look coordinated while wearing similar colour tones with different textures or contrasting colours with same texture.
Summary: Wear your silks and satins and colours with pride. Bold colours further brings out the beauty of the look.
3. Bright Tones and Pastels
Pastels are light, “fade-ish” variations of cool colours and absolutely lovely to pair up. If you’re not one to mix up pastels, you can switch things up and pair with bright colours. They can either be sharp contrasts like I styled or you can choose sharp colours which are closely-related to your pastel colour.
Summary: Choose a pastel colour and spice it up with sharp tones.
4. Pastels and Maxis
Wearing several shades of pastels gives a really coordinated look that blends seamlessly into one another. Pastels come in colours of purple, pink, blue, etc. Maxi dresses and skirts are one of the best ways to coordinate your pastels and give you an elegant look effortlessly.
Summary: Pick up your maxi skirts/dresses in pastel tones and work them all together.
